    When I open my eyes and leave the auditorium, I see things I did not see on the way in. The grass on the ground, the sky rising up, and the bustle of people. "After Yang" is such a film, a film that breaks down the barriers of what we thought we had and shows us what we really have. - Joakim Silverdal

    Even though I am sure that some will dismiss "After Yang" due to its slow pace, I am equally sure that this is why it will remain in the subconscious of others. A memory that, even if a life is too short to keep it forever, can still live on through all those who come after. - Lucas Mass

    Despite its relatively short playtime of around 90 minutes, "After Yang" feels considerably longer, but due to its consistent calm rather than being slow or drawn-out. At the same time, it is a film where you need to be on the right wavelength to truly enjoy its pace. - John Åsenius

    Origin and belonging are at the center of the poetic "After Yang".

    "After Yang" resembles certain exclusive tea resorts. One feels that there is an attractive palette of flavors, but it teases one's senses. - Helena Lindblad

    "After Yang" is a beautiful, but still depiction of the meaning of life in the high-tech world. - Jeanette Gentele

    When one lacks real depth, it is always possible to complicate the storytelling in order to conceal it. - Emma Gray Munthe

    The film's timid curiosity is reminiscent of Terrence Malick's, but like the old auteur, Kogonada's "After Yang" often gets a bit too distracted by his own trains of thought and reflections, to the point that it sometimes feels like he forgets the audience who is trying to decipher them. - Oskar Pettersson

    It is beautiful. It is tasteful. It is painfully sad. We might as well look at an animated furniture catalog from an upscale department store, decorated with neatly ironed people in brand-name clothes. An emotional life without temperament, without stains. How interesting or credible is that? - Michael Tapper
